Pop-Up Blocker Problem with Printing FOR
- Yes Nancy. I had similar problems.
Solution I found: Hold down the control key BEFORE you click on "print" in
the Temple Submission Tab. The process takes awhile as the data is gathered
and the Adobe PDF kicks in. Just hold the control key down until the PDF
The latest update of nFS seems to have 3 steps where you have to click on
the print button. Be sure to keep that Control key pressed down the entire
time. Don't release it until the PDF of your FOR appears and you can save
This has been my solution.
